Halloween Party Ideas

halloween party ideas

I cannot believe it has been a while since I last Blogged on here. Well I will tell you about some new pages I created to help you with your Halloween Party Planning. To start I made a great blog post all about Personalized Halloween Party Invitations including one of my favorites that gets put inside a cardboard coffin box. So when it comes to getting out your Halloween Party Invites you will find some really great ideas and some that are very creative as well.

Ghost Pinata

Next I wrote a Squidoo Lens all about Halloween Pinatas and there you will find every pinata available for this fun holiday. When writing this I was absolutely amazed at how many choices there are available. My personal favorite Halloween Pinata would have to be the Ghost – it is just adorable as it looks like it is flying.

To go along with that I did a Squidoo Lens on the Best Halloween Party Games available. A Halloween Party would not be complete without some fun spooky games for the kids ya know.  I have also included one of my favorite games which is the Touch and Feel Boxes with Step by Step Instructions and ideas for some gross things the kids can touch. You will also find many party games you may never even knew existed – I sure did not before writing this so it is a great resource.

Do you think I would forget scary Halloween Decorations? No way – I love decorating for Halloween and some of my favorites  are Halloween Window Decorations. On this Squidoo lens you will find some of the scariest and cool decorations for your windows. Everything from Bloody Window Clings to Clings for your car Windows. You will see a great variety of  decorations there that may just keep your neighbors from wanting to peak in your windows again.

Then I moved to Hubpages and created a Hub on Halloween Cupcakes. On my Hubpage you will find lots of great ideas to make your Halloween Cupcakes looking sweet and spooky. You can also watch a video showing you how easy it is to make Ghost Cupcakes. I have added lots of photos of some fun creations like Spider Cupcakes, Monster Cupcakes, Eyeball Cupcakes, Bat Cupcakes, Witch Cupcakes, Mummy Cupcakes and more. Oh and one of the newest – How about Brain Cupcakes – ewww – Just the way you want them – so come check it out.

So that is what I have been up to for Halloween Party Ideas so far – when I write more I will add them on here. Halloween is so much fun and so are all the parties that go along with it!!!

Birthday Party Ideas for Tweens

mystery birthday party

Do you have a Tween or a Teenager who wants a Birthday Party and you have no idea what to do? You know at that age if you do not something cool it will be the end of the world for them – or at least they think so.  As a Party Planner I have been asked quite a bit about what a good party theme is for this age group.  I just added a post to my Party Blog called:  Tween and Teenage Mystery Parties.  I came across this great site which sells these Mystery Party Kits that you can download and have in your hands right away.  Them come with the entire Mystery already done for you. I think this is a great unique party idea for this age group. It is easy to follow and the kids absolutely love this stuff.

I am thinking I will be doing one of the Mystery Packages for my son’s 12th Birthday Party this year.  There are so many mysteries to choose from so there is something for everyone. They even offer Adult Mystery Party Packages as well so if you are looking for one of those they have them too.

To read more about them just visit my blog where I provide lots more details so until then this will remain a Mystery………..

Birthday Party Supplies for Kids

I had another Squidoo RocketMom Assignment to make a How To Lens. So I thought that I would create one for parents on How to find The Best Birthday Party Supplies and Ideas for your Party. Being a Party Planner I know that finding just the right Party Supplies and Decorations for your party theme can be a bit overwhelming at times. So I wanted to share all of the great places I use when shopping for  a party.

It turned into my Top 10 places to find Birthday Party Supplies. So if you are planning a Birthday Party and looking for the supplies to go along with your theme – then these recommendations will definitely help you along with my tips on purchasing party supplies and decorations.

I also write on Hubpages and wrote a very useful post you may also want to read: Keeping your Child’s Birthday Party Budget Friendly.  It can be done with a little creativity and planning ahead and you can read all my tips that can help.

You can also see that from my Penguin Birthday Party I had for my daughter that I follow what I preach.

Little Einsteins Birthday Party Supplies

little einsteins party suppliesAre you looking to throw a Little Einsteins Birthday Party for your Little fan? Well I just completed a post on my party blog showing all the great party supplies that are currently available. I must say there is a huge selection to choose from.  I myself do not know a lot about this show that appears on Playhouse Disney because my kids are older now, but from what I have read it looks adorable.

Picture 154In addition to that post I also wrote about How to make your own Pinata and told the story all about my Fish Pinata. So stop by and check that out – it was fun to make and I have lots of photos and directions there as well.  Learn why it was too heavy and the kids had to smash it while it was on the ground. lol

spiderman birthday cakeI also wrote about a Simple Spiderman Birthday Cake I made for my son when he was little. I miss those days – he is so past the Spiderman thing now and into more expensive things likes computers and electronics.  Maybe I should be researching how to make a computer cake for his birthday next year. Hmmm maybe I should get on that.

My daughter’s birthday is tomorrow with her Penguin Theme Birthday Party on Saturday so I have been planning. I have been making my own decorations and coming up with some fun game ideas. She is doing it at night so we can have a fire and make smores and night swim  – that works for me. I will write all about it when it is over so stay tuned. Now I am off to cook dinner for the family then to make some more penguin decorations for the party………
